Hardback. Facsimile Reprint. The last quarter of the 19th-century saw a huge increase in Britain's wealth, yet a growing inequality between rich and poor. Nowhere was this disparity greater than in London. In this book, the author provides a unique study of the labouring poor in the East End. He focuses in on one dramatic year, that of Jack the Ripper and the Matchgirls' Strike, when poverty, crime, disease and social unrest were at their height. With 30 b/w Illus. 376pp. lge. 8vo. Facsimile h/back. Ex-lib. but no pockets, dockets or rubber stamps, just signs of label removal to ffep + small tipped-in label to copyright p. o/w Vg+ in Vg+ dw. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage if shipped overseas.
